A little over a year ago we found out that Academy Award winners Joel Coen and Ethan Coen were making a western anthology for Netflix titled The Ballad of Buster Scruggs. At the time, I misread the project as an anthology series when in fact it was described as a western anthology “project,” not a series. And now we know that it will actually be a six-part western anthology film. Whether those six parts will in total equal the length of one feature film or if each part will be longer than that remains to be seen. Either way, I’m damn excited about it.
Netflix has now released an official trailer for The Ballad of Buster Scruggs, which is presented in the unique style of the Coen brothers. Each chapter tells a story about the American Old West, with Scruggs (played by Tim Blake Nelson) at the center of it all.
Suburbicon Director: George Clooney Screenwriter: Joel Coen, Ethan Coen, George Clooney, Grant Heslov Cast: Matt Damon, Julianne Moore, Oscar Isaac, Noah Jupe, Leith M. Burke, Karimah Westbrook Distributor: Paramount Studios Rated R | 105 Release Date: October 27, 2017
On the surface, Suburbicon is supposed to be this social satire set in the heart of late 1950s suburbia, where the little quiet idyllic neighborhood is the epitome of the American Dream. Even in the film’s opening, we see a sales pitch that tries to convince the audience that Surburicon is the place to live with its family-friendliness, perfect homes, and genuinely idyllic atmosphere. At this point, the film turns itself into a satiric commentary on race relations. From there it morphs into a murder-mystery comedy. And neither of these plots has anything to do with each other. So rather than working together cohesively, the two plots are at war with each other, making the film feel like it was shot separately and then stitched back up together for whatever this monstrosity is.
